This non-narrative, multidisciplinary work draws influence from paintings and albums to create a collaborative portrait of aloneness in an ever-shifting world. With songs by David Cale and Matthew Dean Marsh, writers and performers Orlandersmith and Cale use monologues, poems, stories and songs to explore what it means to be alone. Join us for this work-in-progress showing and stay for a live Q&A with the artists, moderated by Sam West '20.

About NYTW and Our Partnership

NYTW's goal is to impact the field of theater and bring new work to mainstream stages. NYTW supports the visionary work of artists through residencies, fellowships and workshops — laboratories of experimentation. With a commitment to pushing aesthetic boundaries and amplifying new voices, NYTW asks what it means to be alive today and inspires audiences' new perspectives and understandings.

Every August, the company brings their work to Dartmouth for a three-week residency to develop and perform new works-in-progress by some of today's most innovative professional playwrights and directors. Recent Dartmouth residency projects have included We Live In Cairo, which premiered at Boston's American Repertory Theater in 2019, and Hadestown, which won eight 2019 Tony awards for its current Broadway production.
